  • TCS is developing business platforms and associated technologies around the digital five forces driving information technology: social media, mobility & pervasive computing, big data & analytics, cloud computing, and artificial
    intelligence/robotics
  • The TCS Co-Innovation Network (COIN™) provides the framework for uniting stakeholders on high-value problems and leading-edge solutions, leveraging a wide range of stakeholders and TCS’ global talent pool
  • This collaborative, innovation-centric approach is powering TCS’ journey from a systems integrator to a systems innovator

TCS’ current emphasis is on what it calls Digital Reimagination™, a trademarked phrase that is central to its strategy. TCS spoke about the 'Digital Five Forces': mobility and pervasive computing; big data and analytics; social media; cloud computing; and artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. Using a combination of these digital five forces to reimagine business will drive fundamental change in business models and processes, products and services, customer segments, channels, and in the workplace. TCS believes that the winners in the next era in business will be those who reimagine themselves to best leverage these innovative solutions. TCS also believes that working with leading customers and through COIN, it can provide sustainable differentiation and competitive advantage.
